Protecting your livelihood, freedom, and dignity
I contacted scullion after being charged with some serious road traffic offences. At the first court date it turned out it was more serious than i thought! but thankfully Anna was on hand to keep me calm and make a fantastic plea deal. On the day of sentencing Urfan guided me through this and mitigated on my behalf to an outstanding level which resulted in me receiving the best possible outcome. Without their expertise, guidance and reassurance who knows what the outcome may have been. I can’t thank them enough for their service. I’m absolutely delighted with the outcome.
Micheal Stewart is the best defence lawyer I have had the privilege to meet. I was falsely accused of a driving offence which was an extremely worrying time. Micheal was confident from day one and put my mind at ease. Extremely friendly but exceptionally thorough from start to finish and the level of professionalism from start to finish was excellent. After this successful defence and a NOT GUILTY verdict I would recommend Micheal Stewart to any of my friends and family and to anyone else for that matter.
Having never needed solicitors previously Kristopher & all at Scullion Law kept me posted from my 1st phone call to the very end result. Guided me through each stage of the process & I felt that I could ask them any question & was made to feel at ease. Great advice & can honestly say they prepared my case very well & got me the best possible outcome. Would highly recommend!
Sincerely grateful to Nicholas Scullion and Kris Buchanan for representing me in court. With 30 years+ driving experience pleading Not Guilty to a motoring offence and having to go through the trial diets, at court, in person, was a first for me. From the initial contact with Nicholas and Kris, I was confident both were giving their best to achieve the best outcome. Explaining the details of the unfamiliar court process and what should be done, and when, was explained with clarity. Both were professional and knew their stuff. They had clearly thought through the possible approaches, in advance of the court dates and when in court knew what to say, and when, The result was deserted simpliciter. No hesitation in recommending Scullion Law…Worth every penny.
